PETROL GOOD FOR WOUNDS. To motorists petrol is not only ot value as a propelling article, hut also in case of accident it affords the best means of cleaning a wound. In cases : of irregular wounds, such as scrapes | or praxes, petrol affords a ready | means of cleansing so. that all that is required besides is cotton-wool for dressing the wound. j The non-irritating quality ot pet- j rol gives it & ready advantage over all other antiseptics, especiallj thoso of the coal-tar group. Its one great I disadvantage 1b that it is so inflom j mahle ; and, unless operations or ap ■ plications can be made away, from a I fire, its use is contra-indicatcd.

DRBSS FOR MEN AND WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Riverina Echo — 12 December 1913
DRBSS FOR MEN AND WOMEN, Mr. H. Bi-nnis Bradlej comments od l"he woman's idea of how men should flrc-s. The> consensus o&lt; feminine opinion appears to be that a man's shoice should be restricted to t— Dark blue or grey suit. Plafn black or blue socka. Black tio, with 6mall white spots. No monocle. No Jewellery. Black boots. (Certainly no spats,) Hair brushed flat, and never frlz2y. There Is, Mr. Bradley thinks, little danger of the feminine view having the slightest influence on this ques tion, for whilst women dress to an noy other women, men dress to please themselves. Mr. Bradley concludes by offering, in nil humility, a few ideas on how a woman should dress from a eo'ncr and moral point of view :— Pliin drab costume, entirely dis guising her figuro. Drabber the bet ter. Blac'c pork-pie hat, with small white spots. v» No jewellery. (What ji save !) Pair of spectacles. A. virtuous umferella. Natural wool stockings, and an en tire absence of alluring embroideries. Conl...

(By llic author C!f "DiniKi" ; "A Tangled \Yd>," el'.-., etc.) CHAPTER XXH --"Paradise Itself!"— Regent's Park un an April' afternoon may not be as inspirit-' ing a placc as the countryside at the same season. Nevertheless it has a charm of its own; and after all, a placc bccdmes iii ' spiriting or the reverse, accord ing to the. point of view, from which it is seen bv the human being within it. To this day, Alison Metcalfe has a fixed idea thai Paradise and Regent's Park have a close affinity with one another: but then slie saw the park under circumstances which may be said fully to have justified her in that idea. She had been a month in comfortable lodeings in London, a month during which she had spent a considerable amount of time in walking briskly about the streets and parks, trying, as she said, to ...
